A Mothers Fury

lightning6

Blue skies fill with sinister clouds
Gathering in the distance full of pain
Lightning crackles to show its furious bite
Warning of this storm brings more than rain

I can’t help but feel this is a message
One that mother nature delivers herself
She will not stand to be abused any longer
Especially for mankind’s insatiable wealth

My heart cries endless tears of sorrow
For these lessons it seems we never learn
We must take better care before its too late
Before we reach the point of no return

No Longer Blind

Sitting under the shade of the willow tree
Listening to the gentle waves push ashore
Inhaling deeply of the life that surrounds
Of this life I could not ask for more

The sun glistens off the skin of the lake
Clouds roll changing the waters complexion
My life is defined in this moment of bliss
As the lotus inside begins its resurrection

My heart opens like flowers in spring
Reaching for the light for first time
Encapsulated in the auras of life
My sight is clear and no longer blind

 

Spring Love

Your beauty captures my intrigue
My heart fills with the colors of love
Butterflies awaken to flutter again
Birds sing praises high above

Flowers rise to the warmth of your touch
The earth begins to bleed of green
Dullness of gray retreats away
Revealing the birth of colors to be seen

I find myself under your spell
Love of your beauty stains my heart
I feel your life just a breath away
spring is here, time for love to start

 

Mother Squirrel 

I watch in the distance as a mother
urges her young squirrel to follow
her to the grass below

The young squirrel seemed unsure
whether to take the mothers lead
as her impatience begins to grow

After a short pep talk the mother
starts again only to be met with
more resistance

The fed up mother takes the young
squirrel in her mouth softly but
securely as I admire her
persistence

She carries the young squirrel
across the grass a few yards at
a time making sure no threats
will cause them harm

The mother continues on up the
tree in the yard next to me as
the young squirrel looked safe
in the mothers arms

I can’t help but be in awe
witnessing this mothers
efforts as I begin to
think of the love of
mothers around the
world

This world is a beautiful place
knowing that mothers in all
shapes sizes and colors are
much like this mother
squirrel

Beautiful Days Like This

The sunlight beams through every
crack and crevice of the leaves of
tall trees as I stand under
the partially shaded span

A squirrel rests on a branch high
above very still and relaxed seeming
to be in its own meditative journey
that it can only understand

The golden light highlights
incomplete spider webs on the
bushes giving off silky thin
strands of pearlescent lines

The sea of green grass lays before
me gently swaying in the wind like
soft turbulent waters glistening
under the suns brilliant shine

Butterflies show the art of their wings
contributing to natures exhibit as
the colors begin to remind me of
a cool autumn day

The atmosphere takes the breath from
my lungs and my thoughts disappear
as I cannot find any words to say

The dew of the morning moisture sits
patiently on the flowers and leaves
in small sap like diamonds as they
slowly trickle down to the ground

I can feel the peaceful vibrant energy
pulsating within my heart in myriads
of colors uncharted and I make a
silent wish for this moment
to always stay around

Searching

Never ending waves crashing
ashore as I watch everything
and nothing fill the empty
space of my mind

The waves hypnotize me while
the soothing breeze and shore
sounds helps my body relax
and unwind

The delicate white sands
underneath my feet provide
comfort as I know I will
be here awhile

I stare off in the distance
searching for something for
what seems like many
thousands of miles

Watching my life play against
the backdrop of waves I
continue to be comforted
by an unbroken breeze

I feel like I am stuck in front
of a door tightly shut as I
am hopeful my time here
will provide me the key

Every thought comes and goes like
the waves that crash on these
sands and then return to the
abyss from which they came

The lessons of the simplicity of
life is everywhere I look and
I realize the beauty in the
biggest and smallest are
very much the same

I stop looking towards the horizon
to concentrate on the soft sands
I stand on watching the
crashing waves easing
my mind as I feel the
yearning cease

My search is over as a key appears
in my hand and I unlock the door
to the palace of inner peace

Rejuvenation Of My Spirit

In the early dawning light I am
greeted by the golden eye in
the sky shining behind the
veil of silver and
white clouds

My thirst of beauty is quenched by
the illumination of nature as I wear
this serenity like a shroud

Negative thoughts recede away into
the darkness for it cannot survive
in the bright love of the light

My eyes close as I take in a deep
breath allowing the trust and
awareness of my third
eye sight

The eternal light of my soul shines
bright as I am enveloped in the arms
of the infinite universe

The abundance of energy becomes one
with my entire being and I begin to
see my surroundings like a
poetic verse

The soft melody of a song of love
resonates close to my heart so
my soul can heart it

I open my eyes slowly as the gentle
touch of love floods my being
opening the gates of
my rejuvenated spirit
